On November 27, an explosion of roadside bomb killed 3 US service members and wounded 3 others near the city of Ghazni in central Afghanistan, the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said. A US civilian contractor was also wounded.
The Taliban movement, which controls large parts of Ghazni province, claimed responsibility for the attack.
“The U.S. and Afghan forces are desperately trying to recapture some of the important places in Ghazni and have conducted several raids but they couldn’t succeed and have suffered losses,” a Taliban commander in Ghazni said.
The Taliban commander added that Taliban members managed to plant a powerful improvised explosive device (IED) in the Shahbaz area. This IED hit one of their armored vehicles of the joint U.S.-Afghan security forces, which were conducting an operation in the area.
